Sheffield Wednesday fans react on Twitter to Adam Pearson's Leeds United exit

Sheffield Wednesday supporters had plenty to say after Leeds' executive director left Elland Road.

The mystery continues at Leeds United, with it looking like further chaos under Massimo Cellino - and many follow-up stories - could be just around the corner.

Adam Pearson's departure from the club as executive director was confirmed on Tuesday night, with the official reasoning behind his exit being that he is taking a break from football. And that may well be the simple truth.

But there were plenty of rumours flying around on Twitter and, Leeds being Leeds, there may well be plenty to watch out for in terms of repercussions...

It isn't just Leeds fans who had plenty to say after Pearson's departure, though, with Sheffield Wednesday supporters being particularly vocal on social media. The Yorkshire rivals recently drew with United but were Pearson's employers just a few months ago.

The 50-year-old left Sheffield Wednesday after a very brief period indeed to join the Whites, with Owls fans responding furiously. On this occasion, they've reacted with a distinct lack of surprise and, naturally, mockery.

Here's a selection of how Sheffield Wednesday supporters responded to the news on Twitter. What next for Cellino, Uwe Rosler and Leeds? Let's just wait and see...
